Is it just me or did MTV’s “Unplugged” used to be more than 30 minutes? Things have been quiet lately in the BTS universe until we heard that they’d be featured in this upcoming episode. While we’ve been getting many performances of “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On,” fans wondered what the rest of the “BE” singles would be like. Not only did we get in the special with “Blue and Grey” and “Telepathy,” the guys also surprised us with a cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You.”
Nearly hitting our one-year anniversary with the pandemic, BTS gave us a song that would heal, but also a song that has brought them comfort over the years. I’m biased and obviously I would share every performance in a post here if I could, but I wanted to pick out my favorite. Someone asked me today if I thought their cover was better than the original. Honestly, I don’t think anything can ever top the original, but I enjoyed their arrangement of this song too. Did you know that Coldplay doesn’t let just anybody use their song whether it’s a cover or in film and television? Turns out they are quite selective and have turned down artists and money when they feel like their song being use might be disrespected. After this performance was released, Coldplay showed the group nothing, but support by leaving comments and re-sharing.
